Warwickshire vets volunteer to neuter family pets to support Cats Protection

KIND-HEARTED staff at a Warwickshire vet practice gave up their spare time to help neuter 30 family pets as part of a long-standing campaign of support for the Cats Protection charity.

Avonvale Veterinary Centres, which has seven practices across the county, held the event at its Southam practice in March, with the support of a group of vets, nurses and a receptionist.

Avonvale has worked with Cats Protection for many years and, like many charities, it has suffered as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Simon Davies, clinical director at Avonvale’s Warwick practice, said: “I’d like to give my thanks to our staff from our Southam and Heathcote teams who gave up their Saturday to help to neuter 30 cats.

“They have made a huge difference to households who otherwise would struggle to pay for this service.

“They should all be proud of a fantastic day’s work, where their care has helped not only the pets, but also those in need in the community.

“Not only does neutering reduce the number of strays organisations such as Cats Protection take in and care for, it is also far better for the health of the pets involved.”
